Steep face climbing leading to a friction finish. Traverse a bit to the right along high horizontal for the friction finish up the summit block with one bolt. Runout to the top. A medium cam can be useful in the high horizontal crack before going up the summit block for that last bolt.

Part of a 10 route day with Zach. Great weather, no other climbers present all day at any location we climbed. Nice north facing arete (but not great or classic by any means). We did not take any gear up it. The run out part is much easier than the start I thought.
Powerful from the start! Lotsa rest when you need it. Was amazed by how well it was bolted (am I really in J-tree?)... except for before the last bolt. But, as pointed out before, bring something to stick in the horizontal if you're not comfy at the grade... I had a forgotten #1C3 on the back of my harness, and I was happy I did.
